Golfing Grandpas Parking

Original post made by Shopper, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Jul 16, 2013

Golfing Grandpas have recently started parking in coveted spaces, as the central spot for carpooling to their golf courses, obviously not in Pleasanton. Trader Joe shoppers know it is the most hazardous and busy spot for quick in & outs, with busy people in a hurry. 11:30 - 1:30 lunchers at both TJs & McDs are guessing who can shoot out of their respective driveways first, along with the cars that are changing lanes at THAT exact spot, if/when there's a gap, & before the light changes. TJ lunchers want right over 580 freeway, & McD wants left lane to Hacienda, each wanting the next opening!!

Your post confuses me, I can’t identify where these nice guys,apparently getting some healthy exercise and enjoying the outdoors are causing a problem or breaking a law. If I understand you correctly, you are upset because they get to the parking spot first and use it for a few hours. I don’t know why it matters if the Lexus is from Fremont, Pleasanton, or New York for that matter.

Did Pleasanton pass some new parking ordinance protecting all the parking in Pleasanton for non golfing non gold L Lexus drivers?
Perhaps a couple options for your, go to the store earlier in the day, or try parking your car in Fremont for a day. Maybe that will teach those health conscious gentlemen a lesson that they are not welcome to park in Pleasanton if they have a Lexus with a gold L on it.

What a pleasant an welcoming community.

@dublin legal and cholo. The tenants of the shopping center have the right to limit parking to people utilizing the services offered at the center. parking your car and then leaving it for hours can be considered trespassing. If the centers landlord/property management company has signs posted , they can have these vehicles towed.
That shopping center is tight on parking no matter what time of day it is. The grandpa golfers should find another place to park, cvs, walmart, or maybe meet a one of their housrs.
cholo, your comment makes no sense and adds mothing to the blog.
